You shape your voice. You style it every day. Curious Replicas invites you to play with that style. Change your voice’s body. Have it trimmed by a barber or refine its shape in a salon. Add shine, extensions, bounce or curl. Frizz it. Give it a dose of drama. And hear it come back to you – as privately, or as publicly – as you like, thanks to our personal ear-sets and our volume control. Feel its texture shimmer up from our seat, and touch its timbre in the palm of your hand. See its sound incandesce in radiant bronze. Immerse yourself in some new vocal selves: be your own Curious Replicas.

Winking an eye to the long history of voice manipulation across artforms, and setting up a space where anyone is given the authority of the microphone, Curious Replicas brings you inside the very material of your vocal self.
